BERLIN – Argentine President Mauricio Macri said on Tuesday in Germany that integration was the key to fighting the “fears” related to the “Brexit” victory in the United Kingdom.
In a joint appearance with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Macri spoke about the “fears that are going around the world” and said the future should be led by the creation of “more networks, not more walls.”
After meeting with Merkel on his first official visit to Germany, Macri said the best opportunities for a country to move forward came from economic integration.
The German chancellor said the “Brexit” victory would not affect the European Union’s future relations with Latin America and the talks with the Mercosur trade bloc.
Merkel praised the renewed interest in a Mercosur agreement after a long period in which the agricultural section posed difficulties, but she warned the pact would not be reached in “days.”
The German leader invited Macri to attend the G20 Summit in July 2017 that will be chaired by Germany.
